ABOUT GUTHRIE FAMILY WINES

Blair and Caroline Guthrie are making honest wines, farmed responsibly. Their baby side project (only 600 cases a year) is filled with so much love – their wines are comforting and light-hearted as a Sunday morning dance party in your bathrobe. Beneath that, they are strongly focused on preserving and encouraging the good in the world – environmentally, ethically and everything in between.

THE GOOD THINGS THEY DO
They seek out some of the best in the biz farmers in the region, who are doing things the right way in the vineyards. Using the by-product of sugar cane processing, their corks look a little different, but they’re totally carbon neutral. Eschewing capsules entirely, they’re saving waste on that front too. They also support cool young artists they trawl up on the interweb for their labels.
OUR FAVE THING ABOUT THIS WINE
We’d never heard of this grape before (& are super glad we can call it Le Lush instead of trying to pronounce it!). Turns out it’s an oldie-but-a-goodie from the Southern Rhône in France. There’s not all that much of it around – especially in the US. This is coming from one of only two vineyards over there!
